Andre Tavares’ The Anatomy of the Architectural Book (CCA/Lars Müller 2016) is a remarkable book. Piecing together architectural thinking and editorial practice, Tavares studies books as vehicles not only for thinking, but for making and building. With examples ranging from Giedion to Bauhaus and from Dickinson’s chromolitographs of the Crystal Palace all the way back to Sangallo’s Vitruvius, Tavares shows how knowledge circulates through books into buildings and back.
The P&B project looks forward to welcoming Andre Tavares to Oslo on 12 May 2016, when he will be speaking about The Anatomy of the Architectural Book. The seminar takes place in AHO’s board room from 2-4 pm and is open to all.
